    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great store! Overall decent store! I realize guys have a lot of items out of stock, also understaffed departments, but you are trying so hard to make it great! August 3, 2016
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Experience Yet! Any other location of Home Depot I go to the availability, friendliness and helpfulness is never there. I thought because it is a Home Depot I would have the same issue as all the others. But I didn't and it was a great experience. Even though it isn't 5-10 minutes away like the one by me I would go the extra 10 minutes to get the same experience and help at Home Depot. I have to give this store location 5 stars for that. They went above and beyond other Home Depots. From the man who was standing there when we first walked in, pointing us to where we needed to go. To the younger guy walking over to where we were standing for key cutting and asking if we needed help --- to the cashier Tawona who made us laugh before we left the store. I had a good feeling and I hope all that come do too! August 1, 2016
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Home Depot provides great service. Overall my shopping at Home Depot was a pleasant experience. The employees appear to be very familiar with most items a consumer might need. I would suggest that purchasing home related materials at Home Depot is an exceptional choice. July 7, 2016

    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Consistently great store experiences Went to store twice today. First time wanted to find a floor cleaner. Staff at store entry noted exact location of cleaner. On the way out, noted a propane grill on special sale. Went back this evening and purchased grill. Great price. Staff in store, Jeff, helped load box on cart, took it to check-out and stayed with me through check-out process. Then loaded the box in my car. Very polite and helpful throughout, as was the check-out clerk. Best experience I've ever had in this type of store. June 9, 2016
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A Great Staff; A Great Store! The store is extremely well arranged and stocked. The staff is right on the job, asking customers if they can be of help. The cashiers stand in front of their respective isles and its very easy for the customer checking out to see who is available to help them and expedite their shopping experience. May 21, 2016
